In Canada, the shift toward defined contribution (DC) and savings plans continues, with more Canadians relying on retirement savings through DC arrangements. This cultural shift creates new opportunities and challenges — as well as new risks and responsibilities. But the DC landscape in Canada has been slow to evolve, leaving plan members more vulnerable to poor advice, low-quality investment options and high fees that can significantly reduce income at retirement.
Many plan sponsors struggle to find the necessary resources and expertise to help engage employees in their savings journey while supporting their transition to retirement. And increasingly complicated aspects of DC plan governance leave them with little time to take a more strategic approach to DC plan success.
